Laser resurfacing can often improve skin by minimizing the appearance of facial wrinkles and imperfections. However, for many Asian patients, lasers can cause skin discoloration. Therefore, we are very careful when we use laser treatment on an Asian patient. The Icon laser is our preferred choice for lasering because it is suitable for all skin types and ethnicities. When using a laser on an Asian patient, we also pay special attention to skin treatment before and after the procedure. Pretreatment with Retin A® and hydroquinone, a bleaching agent, helps to minimize the risk of skin discoloration.
With the Icon laser, we offer skin revitalization, skin renewal, scar removal, stretch mark treatment, laser hair removal, skin resurfacing, leg vein clearance, and laser tattoo removal.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
Removing unwanted hair is a time-consuming activity that many people face on a daily basis. Traditional methods such as shaving, waxing, and tweezing are effective but temporary and must be repeated frequently.
At Enhance Medical Center, we use the latest ICON light-based technology to provide permanent and effective hair reduction for patients with a variety of skin tones and hair types. Most treatment sessions last less than half an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area and your hair type.
